Changing of the Guard

Our pastor, Fr. Stephen Stanich, announced today that he is being transferred to the Syracuse chapel, effective Aug. 15. He has been prior at Queen of Angels in Dickinson for five years.

He will replace Fr. Timothy Pfeiffer at Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God Church and Academy in Syracuse. It is a big promotion for him, and we wish him well. I know that he will enjoy being reunited with his seminary classmate, Fr. David Hewko.

Fr. Stanich said that Fr. Gerardo Zendejas has been tentatively assigned to our parish from Ridgefield, CT. Brother Gregory told me that Fr. Timothy Pfeiffer is being transferred to India where he will join his brother Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer.

Any idea who will replace Fr. Zendejas in Ridgefield, CT?

No, I'm sorry; I don't know anything more. I do want to emphasize that Fr. Stanich said that Fr. Zendejas's assignment to Dickinson is TENTATIVE.

I have heard that Fr. Dennis MacDonald currently in Post Falls will replace Fr. Zendejas. Fr. Kurtz has been assigned to Post Falls.

Thanks for the information!

Praying for all the priests who will be transferred,
